Sony is in luck, because its Playstation 4 exclusive title Uncharted 4 sold an insane 2.7 million units in its first week worldwide, copies of which includes both its physical edition and digital. The end of the adventure of Nathan Drake is the fastest selling game on PlayStation 4 generating at that time an income of about $ 137 million. Not only it has done well with sales, but all reviews around the game are very positive.
Uncharted 4: 2.7 Million Copies Sold In The First Week
When compared to the most successful rival, the Xbox One game, we have to go to Halo 5, which “only” managed to sell 935,000 copies in its first month on sale in the United States estimated that today, 7 months after launch, Halo 5 has sold 3.8 million copies. So how did Microsoft get the $400 million figure? The Halo 5 Xbox One versions went on pre-order as right on time as August, so I suppose that Microsoft tallied up those deals alongside in-store Halo 5 Xbox bundle purchases, advanced/physical pre-orders and dispatch week deals.
In any case, Uncharted 4 may even outpace Halo 5’s to-date lifetime sales in the coming months. It’s interesting to see Sony provided these figures outright, whereas Microsoft obfuscates sales charts and hides figures.
